ATH Singleton has early offers

At 6-foot-3 and 200-pounds, D.J. Singleton has run the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds.

There aren't too many prospects at that size with that kind of speed.

That's one of the reasons schools are enamored with the junior prospect from Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep.

Singleton claims verbal offers from Miami and Rutgers. Michigan seems to be on the verge of putting an offer out there as well. Plenty of other schools are hoping to convince him to visit their schools.

"I've been invited to Miami and Florida's junior days but I don't think I can make those," he said. "Georgia sent me a letter but it was too late for me to go.

"I've actually already been to Connecticut. That was two weeks ago. It was really good. The thing that stood out to me most was their facilities are nice."

Singleton said he doesn't have any favorites yet.

In addition to the schools mentioned earlier, Singleton said he is hearing a good bit from Texas A&M, LSU and Oregon. He admitted that location could end up being a factor in his decision.

Some schools are recruiting Singleton as an outside linebacker while others like him as a safety and a kick returner.
